In accordance with the California Education Code, Imperial Valley College (IVC) will consider students in grades 11 and 12 for concurrent enrollment as Special Students; students below grade 11 will be considered on a rare- exception basis.
The intent of the "Presley Bill" which allowed for enrollment of K-12 students, was to provide an opportunity for students to take advanced scholastic or vocational courses. Qualified students will be admitted for reasons consistent with the intent of the program. Examples of unacceptable reasons include decreasing the time needed to graduate from secondary school, substituting for course work not available in home-study programs or private schools, and making up for courses in which you have not done well in high school.
Students will not be admitted to take Physical Education (PE) courses.
They also will not be admitted to take below college-level English and math which do not meet IVC degree requirements. Admission will be granted for other courses that apply to IVC degree requirements and are scholastic or vocational in nature. Courses, other than PE, are acceptable as long as they are not designated as "Nontransferable, nondegree applicable" in the Class Schedule or Catalog.
Students must meet with an IVC Counselor when applying to take Math or Science courses.
Applicants will be evaluated for readiness for college-level work based on the following (also see later section on the reverse side titled Exceptions to the Above):
